Motivation Monday – Talk Things Through with Encouraging People

by David Ning · 7 comments


Things happen in life. If we always choose to ignore the problems, it will eventually snowball into a much bigger crisis. This means that we need to take care of the issues first even if it will sometimes bring us down emotionally. In order to stay motivated through these events, it is imperative that we stop ourselves from feeling unmotivated while we take care of these problems.

One great way to do this is just discuss the problem with encouraging people. These people are easy to spot because they are happy most of the time and often have more friends than everyone else. People naturally hang around them because they offer advice and talk about solutions rather than tell you why your situation can’t work.

Talking with them about your problem is great because they make you feel better that your solution will work. In addition, they will probably offer a few suggestions of their own to help. For example, I felt bad last night because my job and blogs were all becoming a little overwhelming. What ended up happening was that my wife took me out on a nice walk where we talked about things and I felt much better afterwards, and even wrote a post about it.

Of course, encouraging people will never be able to solve your problems completely. They can only offer advices and allow their optimism to “rub off” on you. It’s still up to you to approach them, present your problem and ultimately solve them yourself. If you talk things through with encouraging people though, you will be off to a great start in solving your issues and staying motivated.

    To give encouragement to people is just that best thing I love to doing

    Good tips here. I think talking through any difficult topics even if you don’t have any new resolutions is an important step to learning to let it go and not dwell on it inside oneself. As soon as someone else knows about it, you unload some of that burden internally.

    From my point of view encouraging people is one of the perfect pointers we should keep in mind

  • marci says:

    Sometimes all you need is that sounding board to verbally think things out, and to know that someone cares enough to listen to you while you work it out, and to encourage you also.
    Good thing to remember – timely post.

    Interesting post.
    being positive and encouraging others does help me get a clear vision of any problems that I may be facing and it helps me tackle them more easily.
    I do believe in motivating others you too get motivated yourself.

    This is one of those things that we all know is true but we never practice. Thanks for the reminder.
